Media resource authentication

Would like to request the option to add username and password when creating a new media resource, in the form of basic auth that would be added to the http header.

As my hikvision cameras no longer accept username and password being parsed in the url.

Images are displayed with an <img> tag, so there isn’t an option to send a header as the browser makes the request for the image / stream.

Most browsers historically supported including Basic Authentication as part of a long standing legacy URL format, but modern browsers have started blocking that for embedded resources.

You can find more details about that as well as some suggested approaches in the following article:
